After researching every single modal window, lightbox, slimbox, etc out there nothing fit the bill. Granted some of them were very nice but only fit a specific purpose, others were a nightmare on the code end, and others were just hacks of another.

Since I was writing the code for my day job and I didn't have a lot of extra time to investigate the issue, I just left my initial code in there and shrugged it off.

Description: CMotion Image Gallery is a versatile gallery script that uses the most intuitive input devise available, the user's mouse, to control it! The user can direct both the image scrolling direction and speed just by placing the mouse on either spectrums of the image gallery.
